Movie lovers got a treat this week with the release of two movies with which viewers had considerable expectations. We are talking about “Badhaai Ho” starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra and Neena Gupta in lead roles and Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra starrer “Namaste England”.
“Badhaai Ho” is being loved by people and has got good reviews from audience and critics alike. Word of mouth definitely resulted in awesome figures in terms of the first day box-office collections.
The movie minted a whopping sum of Rs 7.29 crore on its opening day and this amount is expected to increase significantly during weekends.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#BadhaaiHo takes a FLYING START… Gets the advantage of partial holiday… Expected to score over the weekend… Thu ₹ 7.29 cr. India biz.”
On the other hand, “Namaste England” which is the sequel of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer “Namastey London” failed to drag viewers to theatres and collected merely Rs 1.50-1.75 crore on the first day.
Badhaai Ho: Rs 7.29 crore
Namaste England : Rs 1.50-1.75 crore
There is no denying the fact that collections of “Namaste England” are disappointing and only a good weekend total can now save it.
It will be interesting to see how these movies perform in weekend. Which of these films have you watched or are planning to watch?
